It's the same case with the Voodoo5. Tribes2 in general doesn't seem to like
the Voodoo series of cards. Performance in Windows T2 with the same hardware
(during a dual boot experiment with Windows) wasn't great but was better than
under Linux. Athough I was using the Wicked3D drivers, not the stale 3dfx
ones from last year.
The latest "release" (0.7) of the DRI stuff added some better visuals and
performance, but things still don't look quite right. The terrain textures,
for instance, are completely washed out. I'm also getting strange colored
stripes at the top and bottom of the display while in the menus (it doesn't
appear when I start playing). I was going to take a screenshot but haven't
had time yet.
All in all, I wouldn't expect much out of Tribes2 unless you have an Nvidia
card. Of course, you'll be at the mercy of Nvidia's close binary drivers,
but there's nothing else you can do. And if someone has any tips on how to
make Tribes2 look and perform better, please share.

You might try <http://www.t2dedserver.com/commands.html>. They have a nice
set of server resources as well.

It seems to run OK on Radeons as well.

Actually I had rather poor performance with my Radeon when outside... Was
getting around 10 fps..
